SOME PRESS OPINIONS ON THE NEW EDITION. j
"We believe that, all things considered, this will be found to be the bes existing English dictionary in one volume. We do not know of any wor similar in size and price which can approach it in completeness of vocabulary
variety of information, and general usefulness.'— Guardian. HA
'The most comprehensive and the most useful of its kind.'-Nationa Observer.
"A magnificent edition of Webster's immortal Dictionary.' – Dail Telegraph.
A thoroughly practical and useful dictionary.'—Standard.
• A special feature of the present book is the lavish use of engravings which at once illustrate the verbal explanations of technical and scientific terms, and permit them to remain readably brief. It may be enough to refei to the article on “Cross." By the use of the little numbered diagrams we are spared what would have become a treatise, and not a very clear one. We recommend the new Webster to every man of business, every father of a family, every teacher, and almost every student—to everybody, in fact, who is likely to be posed at an unfamiliar or half-understood word or phrase.'St. James's Gazette.
